This article is written by Kristina Ridley who writes for the diabetes blood glucose blog. (http://www.diabetesmeters.org/)This is her personal hobby-blog that focuses on healthy eating and tips to measure blood glucose levels at home to help people understand early diabetes symptoms.
This article may have bearing on remote monitoring technology for diabetes in the what people consume has likely impact on glucose and insulin levels. I know that heart failure patients (whom I understand are often diabetic) can remotely report to caregivers their weight, blood pressures, etc. I would seem reasonable that diabetics could report their food and fluids intake for remote monitoring by their caregivers.
I am particularly interested in Kristina's last section, "Too Much Control." My experience in cardiac rhythm management suggest close monitoring and control are strong positives. I hope that Kristina or someone else could write a rejoinder to this section.
